Sisters and Brothers,
The Association Fleet Negotiating Committee met with the company during the week of December 12th in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The company presented the following proposals to the union this week:
- Vacations – No tentative agreement was reached as the remaining issues include the number of vacation weeks and accrual formula.
- Hours of Work – No tentative agreement was reached as the remaining issues include the scheduling of part-timers and adverse weather conditions.
The union presented the following proposals to the company this week:
- Reduction in Force
- Voluntary Furlough
- One Station Complex Agreement (TWU)
While recognizing the similarities of intent, the differences in application are vastly different in the two contracts. The company’s proposals didn’t provide the protections needed for our members.
The company did not respond to the following articles in this week’s negotiating session.
- Recognition of Rights and Compliance
- Sick Time
